Just a Brief Bio in Introducing myself to All... Most of my life was devoted to a Nursing career. From about age 10... I told my dad I wanted to help people, either as a Nurse or as a Teacher. At that age, I didn't realize that we could do both & more, and so i did. From age 16 to over 30---I spent many years working as a Nurses aide, an LPN, an RN to critical care Nursing to Nursing in schools & clinics. Also taught First aid & CPR courses in Adult ED, fire departments, and other locations. I loved Nursing & everything I did incorporating my nursing career into my life. But, after my 2 daughters were born, and working & caring for sick children & children with disabilities--I also had a burning desire to Write. I wanted to write about experience in life, and a little boy i held in my arms one time in a school for severely disabled children---about age 3---gave me determination to also write for children. I read books to him everyday--even on my days that i was not scheduled to work. He was the reason why i wanted children to laugh more, learn more & grow up happy & confident. He was motionless--had a trach-- could barely move, but that smile on his little face when i read to him was worth a million dollars. After he passed on--I wrote for children, and have hand delivered many copies of my children's books to schools, teachers, Tots Unlimited & hospitals. My writing Career began in 1995. from then to 2007, 6 books have been published: INSPIRATIONS, WORDS TO LIVE BY, LIFE'S POETIC JOURNEY, THE NURSE IN THE PURSE-INTRODUCTION, THE NURSE IN THE PURSE-VOLUME 1, AND........FROM AMERICA'S FUTURE LEADERS. At the present time--I have 3 books in progress--However! Geri will be on a Writing Break for at least 6 months to Rest my Brain>>LOL! The Greatest honor for me in 2007 was to receive A GOLD MEDAL in Achievement for the United STATES. No matter what Awards I receive later on if any, This was my Greatest honor and I'm Happy with that for a Lifetime---even though Business Leaders & BIO Institutes may not agree. At age 57, what are my plans for the future--To continue writing different books of many genres---especially children's books. What have I learned in Life to Help others reach their goals? My Motto is this: Follow your Dreams, because that's where your heart & soul exist, and Never quit. If U quit--U quit on yourself. How can others believe in U, if U quit on U. Be Persistent, and no-matter how difficult the Mission to success may be, Continue to climb that ladder to the top! Motivation combined with Determination equals Success. Those who believe in you will support you in your efforts every inch of the way. Good Luck & God Bless to All! Geri
